    GAZA (Reuters) - Israel plans to halt its Gaza offensive without any deal with Hamas, an Israeli official said on Saturday, in an apparent effort to deny the Islamist group any gains from the three-week-old conflict.

    Hamas leaders in exile have vowed to fight on, but many of the 1.5 million Palestinians enduring incessant bombardment and privation in Gaza seemed desperate for their ordeal to end.

    "The goal is to announce, subject to cabinet approval, a suspension of military activities because we believe our goals have been attained," said the official, asking not to be named.

    Israel launched air strikes on the Gaza Strip on December 27 and ground troops pushed in a week later.

    Israel needs to take it to Hamas WHEREVER they are.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    Israel needs to turn Gaza into a parking lot, kick out the HAMAStinians and send them packing.

    If the other Arab states are that concerned, let THEM give them a State

    The other Arab states don't want them either.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    A one week cease fire...

    And I love the CNN Quick Vote question.
    "Do you think the conflict in Gaza is nearing its end?"
    At present there are 11% of people who are incredibly stupid.

    Hamas must be running REAL low on ammo.

    Let's hope that Israel really did accomplish its objectives and that Hamas is no longer combat effective.

    they need to be extinct. There is a reason why Israel was commanded to leave none of their enemies alive when they fought in the OT. You're an idiot if you leave anyone alive to come and hit you again in the next generation.
